Journal Entry 1 by futurecat from Christchurch, Canterbury New Zealand on Sunday, January 18, 2015
I picked this up in a second hand shop a while back - couldn't resist really, given that a) I used to work with Owen Marshall, and b) my uncle lives very near Drybread (on Drybread Road, in fact).

It's an okay novel. Marshall captures the feel of Central Otago quite well, and the story's interesting (though unlikely in places) but the characters suffer a bit from the unsympatheticness that seems to be so common in New Zealand writing. I'd love one day to read something by a NZ author where I actually like the main characters...
